Pascal Serrarens (PasserVR) develops interactive avatars. With todays VR technology the VR world looks so realistic that people accept it for real. Pascal talks about the psychological aspects of Virtual Reality.

Joost Bosschert ( VRBeelding) and Dana-Maria created an app for people with fear of public speaking. They will show the ‘making of’ and talk about the learnings so far.

Maarten Laken Beyond Care (Triple IT) aims to implement VR in both somatic and mental healthcare. They are creating an app for the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Maarten will explain the concept and how they expect to improve the current treatments available.

> Demo’s

Fear of public speaking

Joost and Dana-Maria created an app for people with fear of public speaking. They will present it and you can experience a demo.

Behaviour of people <-> avatars

Pascal is experimenting with the virtual world to make avatars as real as possible. This by studying body language: the way people breath, move, et cetera. Pascal studies the behaviour of people, as well as body movements.

Sport (softball) coach

Joost created a softball app used for training purposes.


There is going to be various demo’s, e.g. Arachnophobia (fear of spiders), fear of public speaking, Agyrophobia (streets fear), fear of riding buses.

See you all on the 25th of November!

"To begin with, Virtual Reality is a part of computer science and it represents a new approach to computer science. Instead of treating the computer as a box that's out there that is supposed to accomplish something, you put a human being in the center and say, "Let's look at the human being closely. Let's see how people perceive the world or how they act. Let's design a computer to fit very closely around them, like a glove, you might say. Let's match up the technology to exactly what people are good at.""
